When is your surgery? I'd give your doctor a call and let him know you may be coming down with something and find out what he suggests. Also, it probably depends on how extensive your surgery is going to be ( sorry, I don't know much about you and your situation), how long you'll be "under", and how severe the cold. These are all just guesses on my part. Basically, I'd call your doctor. Good luck!!!!
I'm kinda curious as to that myself. I have the flu and they are scheduled to do a hysterectomy on me Tuesday. I've been told that I need to force myself to eat and while I've tried, I have a fever and the items they told me I need to eat keep coming back up. Dairy Products are a strict no-no when you have a fever. I haven't been able to get more than a couple tablespoons of juice down much less the liquid laxative I'm going to have to take tomorrow. Can they still do surgery on someone that sick? Isn't there a risk of my drowning in my own vomit if I throw up during surgery? I don't feel safe having this done. I have been bedridden for 2 days as it is. I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow at 9am. Any suggestions on what I should do if they say it's completely safe? I've been told by my Mother, who was a nurse, that it isn't.
